Please note the referral protocols for oral surgery and referral forms for minor oral surgery for Hampshire registered patients have now been updated. The minor oral surgery referral system is being piloted across Hampshire, with services now available from primary care providers. An evaluation will be undertaken and the LDC welcome your comments to inform this.
Work is being developed to develop minor oral surgery services across Hampshire and the proposals to implement a study in the South East of Hampshire for referrals to Portsmouth Hospitals. After a very successful consultation and engagement event with local practitioners the study/referral criteria and referral forms have been developed and can be downloaded from the links below.
There is now one telephone number for all three referral centres, with options to select for each service as follows:-
Telephone Number 0300 300 2014
Option 1 – Minor Oral Surgery Referral Centre
Option 2 – Orthodontic Referral Centre
Option 3 – Special Care Dental Service Referral Centre
There is a message on the old numbers asking callers to redial the new number. All paperwork will be amended accordingly.
